Dixons did sell a pack of international telephone converters at one time so they do exist. If you are in Spain at the moment, that's not much help but, can you try a Spanish computer shop/ telephone shop of something like that?

Hi, Look very closely at your phone (On the sides and underneath), there may be a mute button or switch. Cheers, Bill

Not a phone technologist:) but I remember having a lot of trouble in the USA with a phone that wouldn't ring (but otherwise worked) and found out that although the phone system in NJ was digital, the ringing was analogue (or something like that) and it never did work properly. I bought a US phone and all was well. The only reason I wanted to keep my own phone was because it had a lot of numbers in its memory which I realised when I was there that I couldn't use as the dialing codes were different - thick or what??????????????
